Recently, I spoke with a young student and an excellent surfer among others. Mitchell told me that his friend made a video of him surfing the tube of the surf zone, a perfect picture. Unfortunately, there was a piece of garbage in the photo that followed the wave around it that was visible and ruined everything. If it had been just a digital photo, someone could have taken pictures. Okay, let’s talk about it because Mitchell and I thought about it.
Why not an iPhone app game, something like Angry Birds, but it’s overfed over garbage in the sea. The goal of the game would be to stay in balance, but also to take pieces of garbage while you (actually your avatar in this case), and to stop those bits of garbage in your wetsuitzak with a backpack. You get points for every garbage that you collect and dump in the garbage of the beach. You always get points when you tell someone to pick up the discarded garbage.
Now we decided it would be wise to sell this application online for $ 0.99 and half of the money would go to the Surfrider Foundation for their work cleaning the beach. Why? Because Mitchell’s experience should never have happened that day. Nobody in the United States or anywhere else in the world should throw garbage anywhere in the ocean. Just as we paint in rainwater canals, “this water leads to the sea,” people need to understand that waste in the sea is unacceptable.
If such an application was even a tenth as popular as the Angry Birds game app, the amount of awareness and good that could be done would be enough to put an end to waste in the waves. If you search for “The Pacific Gyre” on YouTube, you’ll see how serious this problem is in the world. You may also want to watch; “Garbage Island – Gulf of Mexico” because you once learned how bad it is.
In fact, I’m sure you agree to pay a dollar for a cool iPhone game app by a surfing avatar collecting trash while playing golf. So, I hope you think about it and think about it. If you have further comments or questions, send me an e-mail.
